I'm TTC#3 right now. Looking back at TTC#2, I got my BFP at what appears to be 6 weeks; same thing happened when I conceived #1. Both times, I also had a normal period, perhaps slightly lighter / less cramping but not by much. Definitely not just light brown spotting like IB is typically described as. Any thoughts about what is going on?
I don't temp/chart but if anyone is willing to take a closer look at the dates from TTC#2, this is the info I have saved: CD1 June 17/10; AF/IB? arrived July 15/10-July 19/10; BFP on a HPT with FMU July 30/10; BFN at Dr.'s office with afternoon urine; ultrasound Aug 5/10 with 93bpm heart rate, estimated to be 5 weeks & 5 days along. I can't figure out when I might have conceived - late in my cycle? Is implantation happening late? Why is my body having full periods after conception? How would this affect my EDD? LO#2 arrived at 38.5 weeks. Could I have issues with progesterone levels? Just trying to figure out how to increase my chances of conceiving again :-)
Thanks for your help!
Oops, forgot to mention that. Very regular, mostly 28 day cycles (27-29 days). In case it's relevant, I'm also hypothyroid since after the birth of LO#1 but it's well regulated.
This doesn't explain my late BFPs but I found this study showing that bleeding in very early pregnancy can be normal and still lead to a healthy outcome. It was relieving for me to read; just thought I'd share in case it might help anybody else:
lisab82, have you tested again? I just got a BFP tonight, 4 days after AF was due to arrive. Today is day #3 I've had of bleeding; it started out brown and turned to red yesterday. I've even had some cramping. I will follow up with my doctor to make sure that baby is indeed growing well but since I had 5 days of bleeding at the start of my last pregnancy, I'm still excited and hopeful about this pregnancy. Good luck!
